There is nothing much to port.  Few months back I had cross-compiled TinyX
successfully for a MPC860 board on x86 platform.
Except the proprietary touch screen interface(we added this ourself),
everything else worked fine on the target framebuffer device.  But I haven't
tried the complete X.
I hope this information is useful for you.
